There is a long list of great back country skiing spots that we can guide you to in the Wasatch mountains. Each spot is unique in the experience it will provide you, but what they all have in common is the fun you will have on them. They also all offer some exceptional views of  the mountains and the surrounding landscape.

What people are saying about -Todd


I have booked the backcountry ski for 3 days and did only 1/2 - 1 day. Hiking uphill is much too exhausting for me, although I am in reasonable condition. For sure this must be much better communicated towards customers, that they need in ultimate condition. So spending 1200 USDollars and having only '1 day done' is not a great experience. Can I get some of the money back?



Todd is a very experienced guide who knows the area like the palm of his hand. He tailored a plan that adapted perfectly to the conditions and our group, and he got us to some great powder even after 1 week since the last snowfall! We had a great time and I will for sure call Todd again next year when I return to Utah!
